During a  recent visit, two of my grandchildren and I spent many pleasant and productive hours in my studio felting and dyeing.  Here are the results:

Inspired by Chad Alice Hagan's great hat book, my (almost) fifteen year old grandson designed and made this awesome hat.

And his nine year old sister made this fabulously colorful felt bead bracelet.

What a joy to be able to pass on my skills and passion for creating things to such wonderful, enthusiastic young people!!!

Hard at work

Fulling ....... fulling
and more fulling!
Finally! blocked and drying

Making the felt beads
Carefully hand painting each bead with dye in unique patterns and colors.

Proudly modeling the fabulous results of all that hard work
